Their bridge had collapsed due to heavy rains & Wessels (the manager) personally drove us on 4X4 track to our lodge which was right on the olifants river. Every morning we were treated to a large group of baboons making a racket on the opposite bank of the river. We heard hippos through the night and were lucky enough to spot a couple in the waters. Rooms were very tastefully done & we had complete access to the large kitchen. Service was courteous and prompt. Overall a very nice place to stay. Highly recommended.
